On 6/9/2017, some members of the Magnolia Rotary Club attended the Rotary Presidential Peace Conference in Atlanta Georgia. Pictured above from left to right are Magnolia Rotary Club Members Kelly McDonald, Barbara Provencher, Marcie Parker, Frank Parker, and Real Provencher.
Peace is the topic of this special event. Rotary will celebrate their successes as they look back at their history of making peace a priority, through their Peace Centers and their work on the underlying causes of conflict: poverty, disease, and illiteracy. They will also highlight the roles that Rotarians, Rotary program participants, and alumni have played in contributing to peace and international understanding. Also, they will look ahead to what they might accomplish during the next 100 years.
